Three Western Pocono Lions Club members were recognized for membership tenure when the Western Pocono Lions Club met recently at the American Legion Post Home in Gilbert.

Herman Green and Fred Klein received their 10-year recognition from PDG Bob Argot. Steve Carey received his for 35 years. Each Lion has served in various capacities during their years of membership.

Their certificates, signed by Lions International President Wing-Kun Tam, read in part that it was a time to celebrate accomplishments and plan for the future.

The club itself received recognition from the Northeast Eye Bank from member and Lion PCC Chris Sweeney, president of the Eye Bank. The club was honored with a Humanitarian Society of the New Vision recognition, having donated $1,000 to the Eye Bank.

The speaker for the meeting was Jonathan Hunsberger, who shared his summer's experience at the Monroe County Conservation camp.

The camp allows no electronics, but instead offers outdoor education, teaching trust and cooperation and stretching minds through a variety of activities.

Being on the river trip, though not writing about his experiences, was Hunsberger's favorite part of the weeklong educational adventure. The Tannersville Lions supported his camp trip.

The club will not be meeting in November due to the Thanksgiving holiday and the December meeting will be a Christmas Party on Dec. 15 at the Willow Tree Inn, rather than holding a regular club meeting.

In the interim, the club will be active, collecting eye glasses; ringing the bell for the Salvation Army at Kinsley's ShopRite on Dec. 8; and assisting the Pleasant Valley Leo Club in its various projects. Among them are collecting cat and dog food, kitty litter, blankets and towels, to benefit A.W.S.O.M., a no-kill shelter in Stroudsburg.
